A Study to Determine Competencies Needed in Selected Job Titles in Agricultural Products Occupations.
Amberson, Max L.; And Others
The report is a composite of competency interviews and a compilation, evaluation, and analysis of data on agricultural products occupations (bakery, dairy, meat, and flour milling industry job titles). The study was conducted to obtain information which would identify the knowledge, skills, and attitudes needed by employees in selected job titles in the aforementioned industries in Montana. This was done through the use of competency statements, a competency instrument, and rating sheets used by trained interviewers. Responses were obtained from employees or supervisors, coded, and mean ratings were determined and ranked. The probability values were also ranked. The results of the rankings of personal qualities competencies, supervisor competencies, and the selected job title competencies are presented in table form. It was concluded that the research model satisfactorily yielded the data necessary for the purpose of the study. It was also concluded that, although the competencies for the job titles were defined broadly, the competencies rated were important to the particular job titles studied. The need for various competencies varied across the four industries--some were common to all, others were more specific. (The questionnaire, competency instrument, and pertinent forms and correspondence are appended.) (AG)
